From Curry to sweet Teriyaki flavors, McDonald’s will be testing six Rice Meals across 30 restaurants with its new, limited time offering

DUBAI, UAE – 21 September 2022:  McDonald’s UAE is testing a selection of flavor-packed rice dishes, available from today until stocks last. The dishes are inspired by the market’s love for the humble grain and will be tested across 30 restaurants for a limited time.  

Customers can choose from six delicious Rice Meals that cover a variety of flavors, from Chicken Katsu Curry for the spices lovers and Chicken Teriyaki for the sweet sauce lovers; Chili con Carne for heat- seekers; to Beef with Gravy and Mushrooms and Beef with Mushroom Sauce for the mushroom purists, with a veggie option available as a Katsu Curry meal.

The Rice Meals will come in different serving options, including a la carte option for AED 19, or with a regular drink for AED 22, with a value option available for just AED 12, a la carte and AED 15 with a regular drink.

"While burgers and fries will always be the backbone of our offerings, we want to make sure we appeal to the tastes of our local community and bring them closer to the flavors they love. Because our customers are at the heart of everything we do, we decided to test Rice Meals and base the decision to keep them on the menu on feedback we receive from them and the performance of each product at these 30 restaurants. We look forward to hearing from our customers and we hope they enjoy them as much as we have while creating them!" said Walid Fakih, CEO at McDonald’s UAE.
